A San Diego District Court will hear arguments in May from The Washington Post on why documents related to a class-action lawsuit against Trump University should be made available to the public, Politico reports.

The newspaper asked for the court to unseal the documents earlier this month, arguing that since the founder, Donald Trump, is now the leading candidate from president in the Republican Party, the case is of legitimate interest.

"This case focuses on allegedly deceptive commercial practices by a leading presidential candidate whose claim to be qualified for the presidency hinges on his business record," the Post wrote in a court filing. "Plaintiff’s allegations in this case, and the lawsuit itself, have become prominent campaign issues."

The hearing is set for May 27.

Some former students of Trump University, which was actually a series of seminars, allege they did not receive the expert knowledge of real estate investing that was promised by Trump in a video promoting the courses. Trump counters that most of his students were satisfied with the course.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is pursuing a separate fraud case against Trump University, and a hearing is set for that case on Tuesday, according to Politico.
